Real Madrid are set to table a bid of £300million to beat Manchester United to a deal for Paris Saint-German star, Neymar this summer.

Neymar has been linked with a move away from PSG since joining the Ligue 1 giants from Barcelona in a deal worth almost £200m.

According to The Sun, UK, The Los Blancos have remained the frontrunners to secure a deal for the former Barcelona star ahead of United, who were lining up a world-record move for the 26-year-old, with manager, Jose Mourinho desperate to bring the forward to Old Trafford.

It claimed that as part of Neymar’s move from Barcelona to PSG, a stipulation was included in the deal, allowing him to leave the Ligue 1 giants for £263m on September 1, the day after the transfer window closes.

It added that the reigning Champions League holders are hoping to sign Neymar this summer in a deal that will cost over £300m and don’t want to wait until January next year.

However, Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric was captured in a video exchanging shirts with Neymar outside the dressing rooms at Anfield after Brazil defeated Croatia 2-0 in a pre-World Cup friendly played last week Sunday in Liverpool Stadium.

And towards the end of the 42-second clip, Modric can be heard telling Neymar, “We are waiting for you, eh.” Neymar replied with a laugh before the video ended.
